    I was wondering if a person opens a Facebook account using its company name or a cafe name etc, do they need to pay any fee to facebook? I thought it is free all the while as I have seen a lot of companies, cafe, restaurants, shops etc promoting their business or products via Facebook.

      It’s free to open a Facebook account, whether personal or for business like a fan page or business page. And like I said in this article, it is also free to promote your business using your personal account, just don’t forget to do it moderately and not spam people. But to maximize the results, you have to use a fan page or business page, and pay for Facebook advertising to have your posts boosted and reaching wider audience.

  2. I have not yet encountered those scammers who promise you can earn from Facebook, but I will be on the lookout in future. Thank you.

    I also want to thank you for showing me that there is a way to utilize Facebook to advertise without cost. Thank you again.

      Hi Sheila,

      Thanks for reading, and for leaving a comment.

      In the Facebook groups where online marketers lurk, there are many of them. Dishonest marketers blatantly saying you can make money with Facebook. Some are legit marketers but using the message inappropriately. I guess, what they really mean with their adverts is, “You can make money in your online business using Facebook as your advertising platform”. Because, you can never make money with Facebook unless you are in the payroll of Facebook.
